Personal Degree Assessments

by Robin Armstrong


My Pluto is in the 23rd degree of Virgo.

23º VI(Bardon): Elipinon, By this head the magician is instructed and trained in all mantic arts according to the laws of analogy, no matter whether fortune telling with cards, the tarot game, 1-Ching, chiromancy, horoscopy, or anything of that sort is involved. Elipinon makes it possible for the magician to become a prophet by the training of the mantic arts and he helps him in becoming a genuine expert in this respect. Mantic experts all over the world are under the control of this head of the zone girdling the earth.

Being a naturally investigative type of person who loved solving mysteries, the mantic arts have always been to me the ultimate challenge. My interest more or less began when I was twelve years old. During university, I began reading and studying the art of astrology. This in turn was followed by chiromancy, the tarot, numerology and most recently the I Ching. I am far from being an expert in any of these fields, however, people have come up to me and said that I was good to the point that they were willing to pay to have a reading done jh

My Mars is at 21° 19’ Capricorn

22°CP(Bardon)Ybario is regarded a special custodian of Divine Justice, for he controls the doings of negative powers in the whole zone girdling the earth as well as on our planet in all three planes, i.e. in the mental, astral and physical world. This head sees to it that the negative powers never get the upper hand and that no chaos is created in these spheres, which, if it so happened, would have to be again equalized by the positive powers. Ybario’s basic qualities are harmony and justice.

“…custodian of Divine Justice.” I try my best and I’m very conscience of my actions and believe in trusting the Divine Will.

I’m always trying to fight off false desires especially when it comes to food. I lost over fifty pounds and I can’t let the negative powers get the upper- hand otherwise trouble on the scale. With this being my Mars I am always fighting against the bag of potato chips and I must confess, I don’t always win and I don’t care because bar-b-que is my favourite flavour ….dd

My Mars is at 8° Pisces

08°Pisces (Bardon) Porascho – This head has a similar range of competence to the foregoing one, with the only difference that he supports man in acquiring his knowledge at school whereas Atherom helps him acquire knowledge by private studies. Porascho therefore can make himself useful in cases of school examinations and courses, should the magician need the assistance of this intelligence for someone who himself is not a magician.

Acquisition of knowledge in school in very important for me. It makes me feel secure. I’m really motivated by learning. I need to go to school because I need communication, encouragement, competition (Mars conjunct the Sun in my chart). The importance of school could be due to a lack of self-confidence or fear in doing things.( Mars is in Pisces opposite Pluto and the Moon.)

My Moon conjuncts Pluto and is in the 9th house which is the house of morals and principles and also the house of educational institutions like universities. I’m thirty years old and I returned to university two years ago. Also, I have been studying astrology in classes for about 3 years. I often study in a group where I play the teacher role. When I don’t study in school I waste my time in parties. I need a lot of excitement (Moon conjuncts Uranus) ….vm

My Sun is in 9° Pisces:

09°PI(Bardon) Egention – Everything refering to or connected with travelling comes under this head’s range of power. The magician referring to this intelligence will always be a fortunate traveller and will succeed in everything planned by him and he will be safe of having any kind of accident whilst travelling, regardless whether he travels on the continent, over the water or through the air. When carrying this head’s seal with him, the magician can never be met with a traffic -accident.

This definition is partially true for me. I immigrated to Canada 6 years ago and I love travelling. Travel is in general very good for me but it’s safer for me if somebody else drives. I have already had several accidents on a motorcycle. I know I’m not a good driver because I am too emotional and also because I am not able to concentrate well enough. The definition of this degree seems nice but lacks of depth ….vm

Kozminsky Degrees:

My Sun is at 02°09’ Leo


head. From the left eye emanates a ray of black vapour ,from the right a ray of yellow, and from the centre of the forehead a ray of white. Denotes a remarkable personality who has an understanding of complex subjects.

Rich, courted and strong, he can regulate his forces for the blessing or bane of men. There is also an entirely occult side to this symbol which expresses the same meaning from a spiritual outlook. It is a symbol of Leadership.

In the left eye, to me suggests left brain use, and the right yellow with yellow ray feels like a well-developed creative side or right brain abilities. The ray of white light in the centre connotes a “third” eye or confirmation of my developing psychic ability. I also have strong leadership qualities ….mmc

My Venus is at 11º 06’ Libra in the First House


man falling from an insecure and broken bridge into a dark pit below.

Denotes one who will suffer chiefly from a lack of confidence in self and ability to realize his own powers and limitations. Evils may assail his health or financial position, and place him in positions of danger from which he can only escape by the power of a resisting will. It is a symbol of Timidity.

I have Saturn opposing my Venus which makes it easy to relate to Saturn’s influence as indicated in this degree symbol.

This planet makes me shy and definitely timid. This timidity con trolled my life and I did suffer from a lack of confidence in myself and my abilities. Because of this factor the “dark pit below” was a familiar place because I never thought I was good enough to do much. I felt tremendously inferior. This obstacle was overcome when I decided to sell cars. Can you imagine someone who is very timid with no confidence to approach people and sell cars. I wanted to quit the very first day. I was afraid to talk on the phone. How can I possibly make money when no salary is being paid and commission and performance is the paycheck? For some innate reason I confronted this limitation and finally realized it was nothing. It was just an illusion of my mind. I was no longer afraid to talk to people or to ask for something that I rightfully deserve. I am still shy and reserved but I don’t let hinder my life the way it did before I challenged the limitation..dd

I found this system very difficult to relate to as most of the degree interpretations really did not have any meaning for me. However I have tried to relate to the Sun as best I can….mm

In general I did not get a sense that this association of body parts to degrees zeroed in on my problems to date…mmc

My Sun is at 23° Taurus

23° TA (EB) Teeth (Rheumatism)

I have never had a problem with my teeth. In fact, they are exceptionally strong. My parents always made sure that we visited the dentist regularly, a practice

that I have continued into adult life. Every once in a while, someone will comment on what nice teeth I have. I always find it a strange compliment There are other things that I’d like to have stand out about myself. It sort of makes me feel like a prize horse. …mm

I have had contractions of the colon and mucous in my stools (some of the

symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome) under high stress situations at work – a murder at the workplace, and when my apartment was burglarized. .mmc

My Sun is at 30° Leo.

30 LE(EB): Saturn, back.

This is one that I can really relate to as I suffer from major back pain. However, through regular exercise and by avoiding activities that aggravate it, I manage to keep the problem under control. (Discipline/Saturn) Although I have been exposed to some severe pain, I have always kept up with my responsibilities (Saturn) and have never stayed in bed as a result, nor missed a day of work due to that problem. …mm

My natal Uranus is in 30° Cancer.

30 CA(Chandra) WILD GRAPES GROWING EVERYWHERE. Ability to find sustenance in any and all situations. Drunk with experience. Grapes are associated with the Greek God Dionysius.

This makes particular sense. Uranus is in my third house, opposing Mercury in the 9th. I find that I can talk to just about anyone. ‘Strange’ people are always coming up to me.
